I’ve been thinking lately that I gotta go see a Warriors playoff game. Oracle Arena may be old by NBA standards, but it’s a booming, beautiful house of basketball. Plus, after this year when KD finds a new team, the Warriors dynasty will hopefully reach a merciful conclusion (Merciful to the rest of the league, that is; I hope they crash and burn and all hate each other and Draymond has to be held back from strangling someone). It’s my last chance to watch what will go down as one of the iconic teams in basketball history in one of the sport’s historic landmarks.
In a tale of two halves, No. 2 Stanford (31-4, 15-3 Pac-12) could not keep up with the nation’s premier offense, as No. 1 Notre Dame (33-3, 14-2 ACC) downed the Cardinal 84-68 in the Elite Eight with a 58-point second half. The Irish will advance to face UConn in the Final Four.
Over the summer, I had an argument with a friend concerning a subject dear to my heart. He claimed that baseball is not a sport, or at the very least, one of the worst sports. We are no longer friends.
After finishing off a three-game road trip last weekend, Stanford’s men’s basketball team (12-11, 5-6 Pac-12) returns to Maples Pavilion to host the USC Trojans (13-11, 6-5) this Wednesday at 8 p.m. PST.
After a rocky start to their conference season earlier this winter, men’s basketball (11-10, 4-5 Pac-12) seem to be gaining ground with their recent exploits both at home and away.

I honestly don’t get it. My life as a Knicks fan has been a tumult of shattered-hope sadness. There is a special kind of despair that results from getting the same misguided dream ripped to shreds every year. The Dolan Era of Knicks basketball is an arsenic-poisoned abyss. Stay away, for your own safety. This trade makes me irate — I hate it with a fury I don’t like to give to sports teams I’m not a part of. It just doesn’t make sense.
Every year, one of my New Year’s resolutions involves some sort of exercise goal — whether it’s to hike a few times a week or to try a new fitness trend. However, after about Jan. 15, every single year without fail, I start forgetting about my resolution because it’s already been two weeks since New…
